With three enormous bay windows from which to gaze upon the Atlantic, this middle apartment feels like a giant turret-room, surrounding you with stunning vistas of the sea at every turn.

With panoramic town sea and coastal views, Huer's Watch is aptly named after the traditional town huer, whose role was to watch out to sea for tell-tale signs of pilchard shoals and alert the townsfolk of their arrival.

Beautifully presented, the whole apartment exudes comfort, warmth and homeliness. The lounge/ diner has three huge windows providing extraordinary views and an overwhelming impression you are suspended above the very sea itself. With the property commanding such an enviable corner location, you might even get the chance the watch the sun rise and set without even leaving the room. In fact, with comfy Tetrad sofas, including a double sofa bed, dining table, and gas-powered wood burning stove to compliment the period feel of exposed granite walling, you may never have to.

In the bedroom, the king-size bed and a floor-to-ceiling bay window might just lure you away from the hypnotic scenes of the living room. As with all the apartments, the bedroom is finished with subtle, personal touches that make this feel like it's your home, not just a place to rest your head.

Entering the well-equipped oak and polished granite kitchen with its Belfast sink and view down over St Ives and the harbour would encourage even the most reluctant cook to tie on an apron and pick up one of the Rick Stein cook books off the shelf.

The very large bathroom continues to impress, recently refitted to a very high standard, it's as quirky as it is quality.

In the end, you can't help thinking, just like everything about these apartments… 'it's all just so very Pednolver'.

St Ives

On 14th July 2007, The Guardian newspaper named the Cornish culture capital, St Ives, as its seaside town of the year. A star-studded panel of judges, including Bill Bryson, Rick Stein and John Betjeman's daughter, Candida Lycett Green, came to the decision after debating the pros and cons of 12 short-listed coastal towns and cities from across Britain and Ireland.

Stein, known worldwide as the patron of Padstow but who has been going to St Ives since his childhood, was one of many keen advocates of the town.

"The thing I really love about St Ives is that it is on two beaches, so you get two aspects of the ocean, which makes it very romantic and quite unusual for a British resort. I think of it as the big brother of Padstow."

St Ives also scored heavily for its rugged views, exhilarating cliff top walks, the good surf at Porthmeor Beach and, of course, its cultural offerings, with judges keen to note its burgeoning new art talent as well as the Tate Gallery (specialising in modern Cornish art) and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Panel member Alastair Sawday declared, "I have a special love for St has everything a seaside town needs". He went on to commend balmy beaches, great surf, fantastic fish, superb coastal walks and an infectious convivial buzz.

Some lesser-known delights of St Ives that came up during the judging process include the regular appearances of basking sharks and seals, the delightful branch line railway link to St Erth, the delicious fish-and-chip takeaway downstairs at the Porthminster Café, and the curious tradition of "silver ball hurling" - during which a silver ball is thrown through the streets by children on Feast Monday in February.




EXPERIENCE CORNWALL: Charm and coastline in St. Ives.Posted: 3:06 am

August 19, 2008

AS London has become more and more expensive for Americans, Yankee visitors to the capital have collected many a horror story. It is perversely therapeutic to catalogue the outrageous prices for things: $50 for breakfast; $250 for a grubby shoebox of a hotel room with a crappy bed; $8 for a single ride on the Tube.

Behind the hysterical

laughter, there's a panic.

Is there any place in England still affordable?

The answer, of course, is yes. In some cases -

Cornwall, for instance - they are a must-visit.

Despite legions of summertime tourists and a real estate market that has shut out many locals, England's temperate far southwest remains relatively affordable for American visitors.

Cornwall is known for its surfing schools, the cheesy resort town of Newquay, the pristine Isles of Scilly and its untamed coast.

The sixth Celtic nation after Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man and Brittany, Cornwall boasts a resuscitated language, an omnipresent flag and a regional pride that manifests in countless ways. (There's a T-shirt, worn very seriously, with the message, "Cornwall is Next to England . . . like Wales.")

In the first tier of beautiful Cornish seaside towns is St. Ives, an art colony turned beach town whose narrow streets throng with tourists during the balmy summer months.

Long a magnet for artists from the UK and well beyond, the Cornish beach town features everything you might want in a British summer seaside idyll - proximity to an undeveloped coastline, stylish boutique hotels, outstanding restaurants, broad beaches, good surfing, galleries and museums.

St. Ives has its top hotels with rates in the $260-$300 range, of course. What's notable is the range of well-designed guesthouses with far cheaper rates.

Perhaps the most charming is Pebble Hotel, now in its fourth season (high

season doubles from $184).

With modern rooms and outstanding breakfasts, Pebble is a rare value in the UK these days.

You can go even cheaper, though - the very tiny Copper Beech Bed & Breakfast offers a double room for $129 in high season. Also on the lower end of things, simple accommodations can be found at the Atlantic View Guesthouse, where high-season doubles without breakfast can be booked for $107.

For grub, there's the

outstanding Porthminster Café, with its irresistible menu, sourced in large part locally (average lunch $31; average dinner $47).

It's not exactly cheap, but it provides good value for the level of sophistication.

For more budget-conscious gourmands, there's the Cornish Deli, packed with local products. Sandwiches begin at $7, while at dinner, tapas-style dishes run from $10.

The town's artists' legacy is on view at the Tate St. Ives, one of four Tate Museums in the UK. The museum's agenda in part is to provide a context for the emergence of St. Ives as a centre of modernist art production and a home for artists from the 1920s on. (Entrance is $11.50.)

Hikers should hike the almost seven-mile stretch of the South West Coast Path from St. Ives to Zennor.

It's a moderately difficult walk with lots of dips and curves. (Wear hiking shoes!)

The views are awesome, and there's a pub in the gorgeous village of Zennor for post-hike relaxation. Return by bus or group taxi, or bus to Zennor and walk in the other direction back to St. Ives.

The downside of St. Ives, if there is one, is in its very quaint atmosphere, which can feel a bit precious. Yet, with the mist and the fresh air, surfers wandering down to the beach, and bakeries selling Cornish pasties and saffron cakes, St. Ives'

cuteness is inarguably


For all of its charms and character, Cornwall remains one of the least affluent regions in the UK, so it has not escaped the attentions of second-home buyers. Property has become so expensive that many locals have been priced out of home ownership many times over, and some who settled happily in St. Ives decades ago cannot afford to stay.

Luckily, you can still afford to visit.

"Perfect location with wonderful views."

We stayed here about 3 years ago and vowed to return! Coming from Australia it has taken us a bit longer than hoped. We have just enjoyed a 2 week stay in apartment 3. Mark arranged everything perfectly, including a welcome basket of Cornish goodies. There is a wonderful view of the harbour and the facilities are clean and extremely comfortable. The apartment has one bedroom, large lounge/dining, kitchen and bathroom, with an allocated parking space. It is in walking distance to all the restaurants, shops, galleries and everything that St. Ives has to offer.
It would not be suitable however, for anyone disabled or unable to cope with stairs as there are two flights of quite narrow stairs before reaching the apartment. Otherwise we can't fault it and look forward to returning.

Lovely to see you both again and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Apartment 3 and i hope it is a bit warmer in Australia than it is here at the moment! I hope to see you again soon and don't leave it as long the next time!Mark

"Fantastic location, fantastic views, fantastic apartment."

The apartment is clean, spacious and well equipped. All great, but the best feature by far is the amazing views over St Ives Harbour. In addition you are only a short walk from the centre and even closer to a really nice beach.

We stayed just out of the main summer season but the weather was still really good. I can imagine this would be nice apartment to stay in even in winter as it as a cosy feel. With Sky TV and WIFI you could easily spend the day indoors. But it is of course perfect for those looking to get out into St Ives in order to visit the really nice beaches, shops and restaurants. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be looking to book again as it is very child friendly.
The owner was very friendly and helpful.

Thankyou for your very kind comments and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Pednolver Apartments and I look forward to seeing you again soon,Mark

"Fantastic panoramic views of St Ives, spacious, very well kept and homely apartment."

Great central location within very easy walking distance of all beaches and restaurants / bars in St Ives. Has parking which is a real bonus considering the location and the flat itself is cracking. Brilliant panoramic views and a lovely well kept apartment with all the mod cons. Large spacious living room and lovely bathroom with superb shower. Difficult to fault!! Had a great week and would return to Pednolver Apartments.

Thankyou for your kind comments and it was a pleasure to accommodate you at Pednolver Apartments,and Apartment 3 does have the most amazing panoramic views from every room,we are very fortunate!hope to see you again soon,Mark

"The most perfect view ever"

This apartment is in a great location with great views. It has parking which is great in St Ives. Just a short walk down some steps and you are in the town. The apartment itself is very homely and stylish, comfortable and pleasing to the eye. Well equipped kitchen, lovely massive bathroom with the most powerful shower, comfortable beds, very clean, nice furnishings and the best of all the views are to die for. You could sit all day and never get bored as you can see the whole harbour and all the goings on. And the owner is lovely and very helpful.

Thankyou very much for your kind comments and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Apartment 3 and as you have said I think the views from the front room framed by the massive bay windows are the best in StIves!thankyou once again for staying at Pednolver and I look forward to seeing you again,Mark

"Wonderful holiday!"

Where to start? It has to be the view itself from the apartment (3). I looked online for weeks to find the perfect apartment for our Honeymoon and when I found Pednolver apartments I knew I'd found "the one". The pictures on the website really do not fully encapsulate the sheer breathtaking views, they are just beautiful. Mark met us at the apartment and was very friendly and helpful, showing us how to light the fire etc.
The welcome hamper was a lovely little touch and very much appreciated. Everything you could possibly need for your stay is there..the apartment is very homely and I especially liked the little touches about the place obviously by his children..the spider in the bathroom wall, the little toy soldiers hidden about the place by the back sweet!

We enjoyed every minute of our stay and we bought some binoculars so we could appreciate the view in full, it really is magical by day or night. We can't wait to stay again, and are thinking about booking up again for our anniversary next year. I couldn't recommend it enough, it really is worth every penny.

S and T thank you for your very kind comments about Apartment 3 and it was my pleasure to accommodate you both on your Honeymoon and I will book you in for your anniversary see you in just under 1 year!!Mark
